The Hunan is housed in a free standing building on the outskirts of town (versus being situated in a shopping center), which contributes to its appeal. At about 5 p.m. on a Sunday, I was the only customer. Ordered the Happy Family, which contained shrimp,...(sea!) scallops, beef, chicken, and vegetables in a brown sauce. I was asked if I wanted white or fried rice, and I chose fried. My meal arrived quickly, It was fresh and flavorful. The vegetable were appropriately crisp-tender. No complaints. Note: The menu states the entree is accompanied by white rice. You'll be asked if you want white or fried rice. If you choose fried rice there is an additional charge.More
Their food is really fresh. Lunch portions are good sized portions, and their fried rice is the best I've ever had!! Recently remodeled and very clean. Our server wasn't very helpful, and had very little knowledge of anything when I asked her about the menu....Maybe she was having an off day, but her personality didn't seem like she should be a server. It was hard to even get a smile out of her. The food was excellent though!!!! We had lemon chicken and sweet & sour chicken.More
What's not to love?
We ordered from Hunan while staying at a bed and breakfast in Excelsior Springs, largely because, on a Sunday night, it was them or Pizza Hut.
We were pleasantly surprised by how good the food was--a restaurant of this caliber definitely...doesn't *have* to be delivering at 9:00 on Sunday night, to make ends meet!
The flavor of the orange chicken was complex, not overly sweet, and featured the wine it had been marinated in; the General Tso's chicken was also excellent (that one wasn't my meal, and I don't usually eat it, so I'll refrain from more elaborate commentary--but it was very, very good!).
Small-town delivery places often have that "been sitting under a heat-lamp all afternoon" vibe, especially by late evening; that wasn't at all the case, here. The food was obviously fresh and high-quality, despite the late hour, and enriched our stay, rather than simply sustaining it.
